Community Events

October 9-11 / All Day
KTA Conference
Generations Together: Our Heritage and the Future

The Kindertransport Association is delighted to announce the 2015 biennial KTA Conference, Generations Together: Our Heritage and the Future, to be held at the Westin Southfield-Detroit and the Holocaust Memorial Center.

The KTA is thrilled to be working together with the Holocaust Memorial Center to create a memorable conference. The Holocaust Memorial Center is the home of the Kindertransport Quilt exhibit and the Kindertransport Association Archives.

This will be the last KTA Conference. Beginning in 2016, the KTA will join the World Federation of Jewish Child Survivors of the Holocaust and Descendants at their annual conferences. This will provide continuity, and connect the KTA with a larger community. While this will have many positive outcomes, it will be a change, and the intimate family atmosphere that has developed over the years will be greatly missed. The KTA has been gathering every other year since 1991!

We do hope you will consider inviting your children and grandchildren, extended, and foster families to join you at this special conference.

For further information or additional registration forms, please contact the KTA registration team at KTAconference@gmail.com or 248.536.9604. We are looking forward to seeing you at the KTA conference.
